After a cold yet brotherly night in a mountainside Yurt, just a post holiday jaunt to start off the year.  This was actually a physically tough one.  Getting a bit philosophically nervous about the May marathon. avg 8:54

Trying to get some base miles in.  avg 9:00  Usually dont see need to mention potty stops but this was near disaster.  Went into 7/11 and once finished realized no toilet paper to be found.  Had to sneak out for some nearby napkins.  made it.

Ran up to Millcreek Inn in Millcreek canyon.  3.5 up 3.5 down.  Had to walk for 20 steps on about 2 mile mark, but overall proud to have run up as far as did.  avg 8:45

smog, smog, smog. probably shouldnt run in this crapola.  Also, felt some new sharp hip pain which scares me.  Mind over matter though eh.

This turned into twice as long a run as I was planning.  I had Anne drop me off half way up Millcreek canyon.  I ran one mile up from there and was planning on turning around and running home approx 6 miles, but saw the pipeline trailhead was packed hard with snow and decided to venture up.  This decision added 7 trail miles and another hour, but was beautiful up along the trail.  I could tell I was underfueled and hydrated at mile 7.  Definitely a hot lamb moment.  This was a trail run/walk up steeps.  On the descent down Rattlesnake Gulch I slipped on the trail where it is steep and basically just ice.  Slid for about 15 feet like I was on a taboggen until got ahold of some branches.  Got out of the canyon and ran home.  fasted mile about 8:20, slowest about 12:30.  avg about 9:45 with just over two hours of run time.  Sore but fun.  Love to get the brothers on the trail.

Wasnt going to run to let the hip rest but the inversion has finally lifted and when I looked out at noon it was completely sunny, blue sky.  Couldnt resist.  took it slow and only 3 but was great to be in shorts for a day.

Decided to get back out and get in the canyon.. Up to Millcreek again for a snowy trailrun.  Snow a bit to soft to really run well, but beautiful and a good workout.  Started at Burch and went to top of pipeline then bck down the canyon to the car.  about 55 minute venture of hike/run.
